  • What’s in your bag?

    As someone who hates being unprepared and likes knowing and planning for every outcome before I have even made a choice, I find myself being asked the “what’s in your bag?” and “why is your bag this heavy?” type questions almost every day.

  • Just get over it!

    “It’s all in your head, just get over it!” I shuddered at the mere thought of typing that statement, but it is, of course, a sentiment that you may have heard, or said. Whether the speaker’s intent is innocent or malicious often has little to do with the fact that the ‘it’ leaves you feeling heavier than before.

  • To infinity and beyond…

    As a 29-year-old female living through challenging times, I’d like to think that my infinitely expanding list of goals and bucket list accomplishments is highly within my capacity to reach.

  • Breathe Jesus

    While running out the door and leaving 2020 behind me, I chose to opt for a different approach to my usually (unaccomplished) goals for the year – a theme for the year.

  • Drink more coffee. Get more done.

    Productivity and the hustle are at an all-time high in society. Whether you’re trying to find your purpose, keeping busy at home or pushing through work, we’re often told to grab a cup of coffee and get more work done.

  • Hope changes you

    Christmas is my favourite time of the year. Growing up, we focused on activities that became traditions leading up to, and for the duration of, the festive period.

  • I’m not okay (pt. 2)

    Hello, November! It may seem strange to you, but I cannot believe that we’ve found ourselves this close to celebrating my favourite time of the year, Christmas.

  • The Crystelda Naidoo Story

    What do you want to be when you grow up? When I was younger, I probably would have given you any possible combination of; Power Ranger, veterinarian, race car driver or adventurer. Now that I’m older, you may assume my answer would change to something more seasoned. But I’m here to tell you that the tone of my dreams hasn’t changed a bit.

  • I’m not okay.

    Is anyone over 2020 already? You probably didn’t notice me jump to my feet and throw my fist into the air. The year has been riddled with twists and turns, changes that happen faster than we can blink.

  • This could be easier.

    How many times have you thought that life could have been easier?
